Some real “scientology math” at work here.
They apparently sent a survey out to 47,565 email addresses they have.
They got answers from 132 people internationally who have actually listened to all these ACCs. These are the people who listen to Hubbard lectures because they cannot afford to buy auditing.
13 of them reported they had completed their TRs and Objectives Co-Audit in the last year which was nearly twice as many as the 7 who had reported completing the year before.
Thus — a survey of 47,ooo proved that studying the ACCs doubles your speed of progress up the Bridge.
Now, if this was true, it DID actually double your speed of progress up the Bridge then scientology should be applying this to achieving their 10,000 ever started on Solo NOTs target. They should GIVE away these ACCs to everyone (they cost them nothing to produce, remember Miscavige the genius invested tens of millions to build CD manufacturing facilities right when they were being replaced by MP3s. They only cost scientology about 10c for each CD. And they have massive overstocks of these lectures because a) they over-produced them in the first place and b) people were demanded to buy 2 or 3 sets and thus there is a glut on the [small] market.
If they gave them away and then gave incentives to people for completing them (like training awards or something) and this REALLY DOES double your speed of progress up the Bridge they would DOUBLE their income AND get people onto Solo NOTs.
Of course, this is all a complete fabrication. But that’s never stopped scientology from asserting lies.
You can bet my hypothesis on the figures above is pretty close to reality. They could not find 47,000 active scientologists on earth, let alone 47,000 who answer a survey. These days they would be lucky to find 20,000 active scientologists in the world. Their international events — mandatory viewing for everyone — see no more than 10,000 attendees TOTAL internationally.
